Why No One Talks About Ideas Anymore

Your Guide In Planning Your Wedding

Making the announcement first: There are a number of couples out there who would never like it if somebody else get to know their big news before their parents do or some of their family members. If at all possible, you need to tell both parties in person. If you don’t have your parents living nearby, it is important that you set up a phone call for them.

Let your dreams be opened to every possibility: You need to sit down together with you fiance so that you can talk ideas. You should be talking about what would be the style of your event, whether you like it to be a beach bash, or a breathtaking ceremony on a mountaintop, or an elegant sit-down dinner in a ballroom. You should do this without thinking about money – yet.

Think of a good timing: While you still can’t finalize the date right now, it would be a smart move if you have even a rough idea of the season or month that you will get married. Doing so will give you an idea of the length of time when you need to get things organized. Creating a guest list is considered to be a very important thing that you should do because it will be your basis of knowing just how big your wedding will be, and because of that, it will help you determine which among the places you have in mind will be suitable for that size of a wedding, how much will you spend, and whether it involves travelling. With that in mind, both you and your fiance should now proceed making a list. You may choose to cut it short afterwards but let this first number be your base.

Now talking about the money: You would find it rare these days to have the parents of the bride pay the whole bill, so it would be best if you decide on your bottom line. You just have to find out just how much can both of your parents contribute.

Organizing everything: It is advisable that you get a notebook and have it separated into different sections where you can input each of the budget category. By doing this, you can easily write down the cost of an item and label it with the corresponding expenditures. Whenever you notice that you’re going to exceed your limit, you can then begin figuring out how to cut costs.

The WHO and WHERE of the ceremony: Finding the right ceremony site and the officiant along with it can be simple – if you were planning all along to be married in a church in your hometown. Even if you no longer live there, you still may have some members of your family who still do and can lend a helping hand.
